BRIAN LEE – CWU NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL MEMBER (RETIRED MEMBERS’ REPRESENTATIVE)
It is with deep sadness that we must advise Branches that Brian Lee, NEC Retired Members’ representative, passed away suddenly on Monday 9th November.
Brian was an outstanding trade unionist whose long career in Royal Mail ran in tandem with a lifelong commitment to the CWU and representing our members.
He was first elected to his Branch Committee in 1977 and went on to hold all senior positions in the East London Postal Branch.
Brian also went on to hold numerous other positions within the union including, the London Region, the National Retired Members Secretary and more recently as an elected member of the National Executive Council, for retired members.
To his many friends and colleagues across the union, he will always be remembered as somebody who carried out his union work in the very best traditions and values of working class people.
As an active retired member he continued to make a great contribution to the CWU and was always willing to use his experience in nurturing and helping new representatives coming through within the union.
Brian will be sorely missed and I know I speak on behalf of the NEC and the whole union in conveying our sincere condolences to Brian’s wife, family and many friends at this very sad time.
Any enquiries on the above should be sent to the General Secretary’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
